Trio for clarinet, bassoon, and piano. First movement is officially done, or at least is to the point where I’m tired of messing with it. It has been sent to TriofuS. Hopefully the premiere will take place in the Spring, but I have to finish the thing first!
Of the six arrangements I’m doing for Sylvia McNair, the three Sondheim songs are done. Next are three songs from West Side Story. I have to get them done soon for performances in February and March.
My transcription of Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise for cello and string orchestra is done, and will be performed here in Terre Haute in March.
For several months I’ve had many commissioned projects to work on. As a result, many other things have ended up on the back burner. I’ve been thinking about my setting of Joyce’s Strings In The Earth And Air recently. It has been several months since I worked on it, and I’m anxious to get it finished. Actually it’s so close to being done right now that it shouldn’t take me very long to put the finishing touches on it. But I really have to get the rest of everything off the table and out the door first. Fortunately it looks like the end is in sight finally.
